The Museum is a free attraction in Astoria. You are allowed to wander through the factory and the docks. It gives you a real sense of what it must have been like to work there before safety was a priority. Parking is limited, but you can drive out onto the dock.

Quaint exhibit worth checking out while waiting at Coffee Girl or Rogue. Definitely check out the view from Coffee Girl!

I was hoping for more. It was just a building on the pier. And a collection of things. It was fascinating. Cold inside tho. Best part is it was free and the rogue brewery is on the same pier.

A "no frills" self guided glimpse into the past! A very special place with the feel of the past - it seems as though the workers have just departed and left the place in tact. View the streaming videos with tales of life in the area in days gone by. This museum is a hidden treasure!

The Bumble Bess Cannery Museum is a free attraction in Astoria. You are allowed to wonder through the factory and the docks. It gives you a real sense of what it must have been like back in the day when Astoria was the canned fish capital of the world. Worth taking the walk, or trolley ride down to see it.

We stopped in here on our way to get coffee. It was a nice, free surprise. Interesting to read about the history of the cannery and pier. Took us about 15 minutes to get through.

This is an awesome little museum that happens to be free. You learn all about the canneries that use to operate on the Columbia River. Lots of displays from the past, and a few small videos. It is on a pier, with restrooms, a restaurant, and coffee shop. The trolley goes all the way out here, or you can drive.... More

Wallking thru cannery to water's edge find Coffee Girl, good for coffee and sandwiches. Cannery workers would get coffee there back in the day. Raised on canned salmon, this was a trip back in time.

Nice little museum with great information about the area, very quaint. The coffee shop is a great spot to hang out there, right on the water!

It was very interesting to see how the Bumble Bee product was processed. The history of the cannery was interesting as well. The restrooms are from the days when the cannery was active and that in itself took me back a few years.
